    Have you been personally offended in this conservation? If not, then don't use it as an excuse.

    I will tell you the real problem. It is our corporate welfare culture that is the problem, not the poor and the elderly. This is where we have a fundamental disagreement. You believe that Wall St works hard for their money while the poor and elderly are parasites on our economy. While I recognize that sloth is not good, I think that Wall St is a parasite on our economy, which has been behind the last 3 main recessions.

The Arab protestors know what they are doing, this is just ridiculous.
    I wonder what it wll cost to clean up after this pointless mess?

    :-D. I lol that they were 2 blocks away from getting it right. Occupy the Federal Reserve would have been awesome, given them focus and attack directly at their problem. Wall Street powers that be are nothing but opportunist. Easy credit and free flowing cash from the FED is what gives them powers.



    Cartoons are fun :-)

    Redeeming factor is that chick has nice boobs but I would shoot myself listening to her dribble. A for effort though. I applaud the interviewer for not going insano on them.

    What happened to the interviewer? Did he go to the asylum? Hearing that drivel (which I did for about 5 seconds and think now have permanent brain damage) would have sent anybody there

    Erin Larkins, a Columbia University graduate student at who says she and her boyfriend have significant student loan debt, was among the thousands of protesters on the bridge. She said a friend persuaded her to join the march and she's glad she did.

    "I don't think we're asking for much, just to wake up every morning not worrying whether we can pay the rent, or whether our next meal will be rice and beans again," Larkins wrote in an email to The Associated Press. "No one is expecting immediate change. I think everyone is just hopeful that people will wake up a bit and realize that the more we speak up, the more the people that do have the authority to make changes in this world listen."


    Oh yes...its Wall Street and the evil bankers...

    I think these people see clearly that they have been ripped off by Wall Street and its revolving door of economic management of our government. Voting doesn't seem to be curing the problem of the masses in general, so an alternative movement for change is initiated. The banks were bailed out and all it has cost us is millions of jobs, retirement funds dried up, an inevitable National bankruptcy, and all is just a delaying tactic to try to save a faulty banking system, but you got yours and screw the others, eh?

    I didn't write this. I posted the article. Someone later on did a poor job of quoting. I never finished college.
